Amid calls from groups and individuals to allow food items get to the South, the cattle traders are still insisting on the blockage of food items from North to Southwest.
This decision was reached after the cattle traders were not happy about the killing of their men during End SARS protest and Shasha market in the southwest.
Some members of the Amalgamated Union of Foodstuff and Cattle Dealers of Nigeria (AUFCDN) in Kano disclosed to news men on Tuesday, March 2,that they prefer to lose their farm items rather than convey them southwest.
“We prefer and our people will prefer to lose those farm items or goods than to continue losing their lives. If you are alive, you can plant another thing, you can rear another cattle. But if you’re dead, you can’t do that again. Only the living can go to the farm.
“We do not want to destroy anybody. We do not want to kill anybody. The number of Yorubas and Ibos that reside in Kano and Kaduna alone is far more than the number of northerners in the entire south-west, south-south and south-east.”
